I think most of the other answers have missed the point: this isn't about overriding user preferences, it's about giving the best quality images in the common scenario of a user's device assigning more than one physical pixel for each CSS pixel aka "Reference pixel" in your image, resulting in the browser scaling up the image, making it pixelated and grainy....

As DA01 commented you should not do anything about it. Zoom is a user-specified option and therefore is under their control. The settings they decide to mess with shouldn't be your responsibility. You can account for different browsers and versions and what not, but reasonably speaking you shouldn't account for a user's zoom. Sure you may account for 125%...

I don't think displaying more information will make the process any easier. Quite the contrary, you will have an overcrowded screen where locations are still difficult to find. I would instead consider a more straightforward way of filtering locations. It could be an input field where the user can write a location and it filters the results live... or a map....

Are you not allowed to use bold text? Given the restrictions you are working under, I would probably use the darkest shade of blue for the headers, the medium shade for the unvisited links, and the lightest shade for the visited links. If possible, I would also make the headers bold. That would give you something like this (guesstimating the colour values a ...

To measure the success of two or more website versions you can use A/B Testing coupled with an analytics service to compare a wide range of metrics such as time spent on page, click-through-rate (CTR), buttons/links interacted with most and much more. Once you compare those metrics with a large enough data set you should be able to see what's working well, ...

Stiff, P. (1996). The end of the line: a survey of unjustified typography. Information Design Journal, 8(2), 125–152. No empirical data, but a good overview. Science would tell us that inconsistent word-spacing as a result of justification may inhibit saccadic eye movement by creating irregular “jumps” for the eye to make. I have not read a study that ...

It is actually 45 degrees altitude and 90 degrees angle. You can see it in the video @Cagrigk posted. (this is the link with the exact timing). These images posted in Material design: The following example shows the card with a height of 6dp. Which implies a conversion of 12px: xhdpi (2x) @ 6.00dp = 12.00px So the card real size is 320*320px ...

I'm on here and on UX.SE... so not exactly your target group. I've also had 20 years writing technical documentation for all audiences (from highly technical to "my grandmother") under my belt. My suggestion to you is to have the designers in question look at the materials you've already brought up (Neilsen's heuristics and the ISO standard) and have the ...

This is just an idea, so it is not completely articulated. Designers are used to working based on specs and under a tight set of restrictions. A good example is design work for the print industry. Artwork that is meant to be printed is created based on a set of well tried industry standards and project restrictions. The designer knows these restrictions ...

We always need to focus on the fact that the purpose of a website is to convey an idea to the user. That idea may be motivation to do something, desire to buy your product, or something completely different, but there's always something you want the user to go away with. If you don't know what that idea is, you need to know. When designing, we need to ...

Just my opinion..... Does my website have a professional, high-end feel? Why are why not? No. Using 3 separate typefaces - sans serif, serif, and script confuses the message. This is compounded when you change fonts mid-sentence like you've done with the script in the page content. "Creative designer of upscale and high-end" is an incomplete sentence. ...

Yes, it's an option in the Adjustments panel: When it's turned off masks will be added only if there's an active selection in the document.

So I am not sure what it is exactly you are looking for so I am just going to take the opportunity to give you feedback on the design. I think the labels are too far away from the input boxes, this can me it confusing for users to keep track of what they are filling in. The social media buttons are far more prominent than the submit button. Not online in ...

What you need to focus on for color blind users is contrast Most countries have accessibility laws that set the minimum amount of contrast between to colors in order for people that are color blind or sight-impaired can manage with your website. In order to measure contrast there are a lot of ways, I personally use this website.Here the laws are anything ...

Other people have given some great tips on the problems that you'll face and I'm not good enough in this area to do a good tutorial but... You may want to design a responsive site that adjusts according to the user's res/device and then you're probably looking for code that will switch images to higher or lower res files when requested, rather than ...
